|Ned Mein Kampf Hitler 1930|
Archipel welcomes Ten and Tracer, who bring us the ethereal dub influenced "L-Msaria B-Lglass". The package begins with "Duivenmelker" which skips along lightly and deeply through a myriad of skittering amber hue'd globules of warmth. "Zakenvrouw" continues on this path while taking things slightly slower and even deeper with woody droning encapsulated within tiny sunkissed drops of liquid. "The Forked Stick" is a dub infused afternoon swaying from side to side in a hazy hammock of nostalgic whi...

The final release of 2007 for Archipel brings about Michel Lloyd's "RÃªve Analogue" which is an exceptionally detailed and highly rhythmic work of seven pieces in total. "Autobahn" switches on the ignition with warm and hypnotic style which takes the aurally syncopated scenic route in an elastically stretched manner. Title track "RÃªve Analogue" is a heavy set slab of gooey plasticine contortion set to a rigid rhythm and mentally skewed melodies...

"Bday County", "Am a Fckn Surrealist" and "Hope Without Leg" ripple up the spine with a down and gritty nature which firmly clutches one's neural axons and brings them nearer to each other, shortening synaptic clefts, and thus digging its rolling rhythmic paws into newly formed pathways with which to trave...
